Playing As AniviaSquare Anivia
  • Timing Flash Frost Flash Frost with Frostbite Frostbite can lead to devastating combinations.
  • Anivia is extremely reliant on Mana for Glacial Storm Glacial Storm. Try getting items with Mana or go for a Crest of Insight Crest of Insight buff on Summoner's Rift.
  • It can be very difficult for enemy champions to kill her Rebirth egg early in game. Seize the advantage by playing aggressively.
Playing Against AniviaSquare Anivia
  • Try to gank Anivia when she's laning. With multiple people, it is easier to ensure that her Rebirth egg dies.
  • If you're playing a ranged champion, stay far enough away from Anivia so you can dodge Flash Frost Flash Frost more easily.
  • Try to fight Anivia in the lanes. In the jungle she can block pathways with lower ranks of Crystallize Crystallize.


  • AniviaSquare Anivia is a combo mage based on landing and combining her skills onto a single enemy. However, 3 of her skills are area of effect, which increases her utility in various situations. Since her kit is focused on a quick combo and a finishing move for one enemy, being a utility combo mage with a great amount of crowd control, she is definitely a mid laner.
  • Strengths: Anivia has one of the biggest auto-attack ranges. Her damage source comes from her amazing AP ratio on both hits of Flash Frost Flash Frost and the double damage on Chilled targets from Frostbite Frostbite. Glacial Storm Glacial Storm is a great farming tool, making her an incredible pusher. With proper positioning, Crystallize Crystallize will push melee enemies away. As she has an incredible scaling ratio, her late game power is quite impressive.
  • Weaknesses: Anivia is quite squishy, she has low base level 1 health, one of the lowest level 18 health pools, and the lowest base movement speed. She has high mana costs, 3 skillshots, and a high cooldown on Flash Frost Flash Frost. She has a slow auto-attack animation and slow attack speed growth. Due to having low attributes, average base damage on her skills and big mana problems, she suffers on a weak early game.
  • Rebirth Rebirth will modify your armor and magic resist, depending on your level, it will drop or raise it. From level 12 onwards, it will begin to get stronger, as it will raise your armor and magic resistance values at levels 12 and 15.
  • Her combo is focused on an all-in-combo, so she can kill a squishy target really fast without retaliation.
  • AniviaSquare Anivia is good when fighting enemies that need to be in a specific spot (Draven Draven and Trundle Trundle for example), zoning them with her ultimate. Good against enemies that need a way to get closer, as she can still maintain distance with her range or crowd control (LeBlanc LeBlanc,Katarina Katarina for example). And is really strong against enemies that don't have any gap closer skills, since she has great disengage capabilities and can punish enemies that come to chase her.
  • The Chilled debuff applied by her Glacial Storm Glacial Storm and Flash Frost Flash Frost will leave a trail even if the enemy becomes invisible.
  • Since Crystallize Crystallize creates an impassable area, it will interact with skills that need walls to have full effect. So champions like GnarSquare Gnar and Poppy Poppy can be really useful on the same team.
    • Crystallize Crystallize grants vision of the area for the duration of the wall, and will draw turret aggro if it displaces an enemy champion.
  • If AniviaSquare Anivia start channelling Teleport Teleport, it will be continued even in hers passive egg form. If you play AniviaSquare Anivia with Teleport Teleport you can use it when you are surrounded by enemies and have no way to escape, but their crowd control spells are already on cooldown and they don't have enough damage to burst you that fast.
Ability Usage
  • Anivia's spells should be used carefully, as Flash Frost Flash Frost has a slow traveling speed which makes it possible for the enemy to use a shield, cure, or just dodge it.
  • Flash Frost Q > Glacial Storm R can farm a minion wave very quickly, but this can burn out your mana pool.
  • It is generally recommended to time Rebirth Rebirth while under an allied tower or while you have your allies for protection. Do not count on your egg too much when you are alone and not under a tower. Low-level enemies can kill you because of the huge armor + magic resistance reduction and long revive time. Try to be aggressive in teamfights so you can deal good damage; be focused and let your team do the rest while they start working on your egg.
    • Rebirth Rebirth can be used to bait an enemy to commit to killing AniviaSquare Anivia when your jungler ganks that lane.
    • Despite having Rebirth Rebirth, AniviaSquare Anivia is fairly vulnerable to other harassment. Heavy hits can severely cripple her. Try to stop harassment by stunning your opponent before they can combo you to win tradeoffs.
  • AniviaSquare Anivia's basic combo is to place Glacial Storm Glacial Storm, place Crystallize Crystallize to block the opponent from escaping, and throw Flash Frost Flash Frost in a line towards the edge of the wall to stun the opponent as they try to move. Then follow up with a Frostbite Frostbite.
  • Both the damage from passing through and the detonation of Flash Frost Flash Frost remove a spell shield from Banshee's Veil Banshee's Veil. This means if you time it correctly and detonate Flash Frost Flash Frost right after it passed through an enemy with Banshee's Veil Banshee's Veil's spell shield, it will dissolve and the detonation will deal full damage, stunning the target.
  • During the laning phase, use your autoattacks to hide harassment attempts. Stand within attack range of an enemy champion and autoattack minions with AniviaSquare Anivia. When the enemy doesn't expect it, launch a Flash Frost Flash Frost and charge straight at them; if you time it correctly, they will be chilled and stunned, and you'll be close enough to land a follow-up for tons of damage. This is an effective strategy because the start of many of AniviaSquare Anivia's spell animations look similar to the beginning of her autoattack animations, and this can often catch an enemy, expecting an autoattacker, off-guard.
  • Flash Frost Flash Frost's area of effect explosion is slightly bigger than the initial projectile's area, so try to hit the opponent twice with the spell by detonating it after it passes through them.
  • Crystallize Crystallize has a short cast time, so be sure to cast it well in front of the opponent. Just a little in front will block you off and push them away.
  • In the jungle, Crystallize Crystallize can completely block off a pathway. Allies can be blocked in/out as well so timing is essential.
  • Frostbite Frostbite deals double if the target is stunned by Flash Frost Flash Frost or hit by a fully formed Glacial Storm Glacial Storm, so try to time it correctly.
  • Glacial Storm Glacial Storm is a great spell that can clear entire minion waves very quickly. Be sure to deactivate the spell when you don't need it as it will quickly drain your mana.
  • Glacial Storm Glacial Storm is an ideal tower taking ability, assuming you have Crest of Insight blue buff or high mana regeneration. You can drop Glacial Storm Glacial Storm on the wide gap of the turret where the minions come out. This gives a lot of enemy champions problems especially if they are melee due to them having to make the choice of walking through Glacial Storm Glacial Storm and getting hit with a Flash Frost Q > Frostbite E combo or try to make their way around the remaining small areas left uncovered by Glacial Storm Glacial Storm setting up for an easy Flash Frost Q > Frostbite E combo. The same concept can be used for enemies playing offensively and attacking your tower.
  • AniviaSquare Anivia is a great pick against enemies that need to be in a specific position, Draven Draven, EzrealSquare Ezreal, and even Vayne Vayne, since their kits need positioning and mobility. Glacial Storm Glacial Storm slows, making Flash Frost Flash Frost easier to handle, and finishing with Frostbite Frostbite is almost a safe kill because Flash Frost Flash Frost's stun will stop your enemy in Glacial Storm Glacial Storm, causing extra damage per second.
  • Because of slow autoattack animations, high cooldowns and mana costs, farming with AniviaSquare Anivia can be hard. So staying safe before level 6 is crucial for a good early game. AniviaSquare Anivia has one of the biggest auto-attack ranges, and Flash Frost Flash Frost can be used for farming too, since it can hit two times and have a good area damage.
    • However, be careful when using Flash Frost Flash Frost for farming, as it is one of your abilities that can help you escape dangerous situations.
  • Frostbite Frostbite deals extra damage when hit enemies affected by Chill, so it need to be the last skill to be cast. The combination of her spells depends on the situation.
  • If chased, place Glacial Storm Glacial Storm followed by Frostbite Frostbite and Flash Frost Flash Frost. The enemy will be both stunned and their pursuit delayed.
  • For a quick harass on melee champions, place Glacial Storm Glacial Storm followed immediately by Frostbite Frostbite. This is very useful to keep distance and harass.
  • When being chased, try to walk through narrow passages. Crystallize Crystallize can completely block the way and for 5 seconds you can hit your enemies without risk (be aware of gap closers and/or skillshots)
  • AniviaSquare Anivia becomes very dangerous when in the jungle, as it gives the enemies less opportunities to dodge her spells. Therefore, try to force team fights in small places.
Rune Usage
Item Usage
  • Try to destroy her egg from her Rebirth Rebirth to prevent her from coming back to life.
    • At early game, the egg is fairly weak, as it reduces her armor and magic resistance instead of increasing. Use this to your advantage.
    • Use knockback or pull effects to place the egg away from allies or turrets that can aid its survival.
  • When playing on Summoner's Rift, a good strategy against Anivia is to steal her blue buff. Without it, she can't regenerate mana quickly enough, even with mana regeneration items, and if she tries to spam Glacial Storm Glacial Storm, Anivia will become out of mana very fast.
  • AniviaSquare Anivia is very squishy both early game and late game. It is recommended to solo her while she is weak early game.
    • Try to engage her when her Rebirth Rebirth is on cooldown.
  • Flash Frost Flash Frost will stun you if you are in the path of the spell. Try to move away from the path to avoid both the stun and damage. Keep range from her to avoid damage.
    • When escaping from her, move criss cross to avoid her Flash Frost Flash Frost from a distance.
  • Avoid confrontation with her in the jungle. Her Crystallize Crystallize can block you from escaping or chasing easily.
  • Keep in mind that the double damage effect in her Frostbite Frostbite only applies when you are hit by her Flash Frost Flash Frost or Glacial Storm Glacial Storm. It will not proc if you are slowed by abilities or Rylai's Crystal Scepter Rylai's Crystal Scepter.
  • Crowd control effects that stop abilities from being cast, such as stuns or silences, immediately stop Glacial Storm Glacial Storm from being channeled. If Anivia is not guaranteed to die within the duration of such crowd control effects, it may be wiser to save them in expectation of Glacial Storm Glacial Storm to stop it from being channeled.
